Miss(ed) Manners

Sweet Fucking Summer in a Pleather Handbag

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 12:02 pm

I am on my roof sniping wireless from my neighbor, and it’s 70 degrees.

The first warm, beautiful day in New York is always a good day to take to the streets and see some action. You never know what you’re going to get, really. On one hand you’ve got people who clearly didn’t check the weather and are wearing coats and scarves (even non-hipsters, see below). Then you’ve got people who’ve clearly overestimated the warmth and are wearing tank tops who stick to the sunlit parts of the street because the shaded parts are still arctic cold.

It’s also a grab bag of chance early titty sightings.

I’m pretty sure that when Pope said, “Hope springs eternal in the human breast,” he was talking about hoping to see the first human breasts of the season.

And with the actual pope in town, everything seems to make sense today. Boobs, sunshine and pointy hats.

All is well.

  1. People who don’t protect their wireless deserve to have it “borrowed.”

    And it was Emily Dickenson who said it, the Nazi Pope isn’t that eloquent. Try John Paul’s early poetry, you’ll find true eloquence there. He has an entire sonnet based on the gospel of Thomas.

    Just another Atheist,

  2. for some reason, I read the last sentence as “pointy boobs,” and had a Madonna visual…anyway…I agree that it was Pope who wrote of breasts in this case, although maybe not pointy ones. 🙂
